Owen Darrell, the Minister of Youth, Culture and Sport, will be discussing youth policy with representatives from other Commonwealth member states this week.

The tenth Commonwealth Youth Ministers meeting is taking place in London from today to Friday.

Youth ministers from throughout the Commonwealth address youth policy at the forum, held every four years.

This year’s meeting will focus on the theme “Aim Higher: Delivering More for Young People in the Commonwealth”.

This year also marks 50 years since the Commonwealth Youth Programme, aimed at helping people aged 15 to 29, was formed.

Mr Darrell said: “This will provide us with a great opportunity to share the critical and foundational work that the Bermuda Government is doing with our young people in the areas of employment, training and development, education and scholarship support and entrepreneurship.

“It’s also a chance to highlight our National Youth Policy for the first time with our global counterparts.

“We are looking forward to the engagement that will take place this week.”

Mr Darrell will be joined at the forum by Theo Wolffe, chair of the National Youth Policy’s working group, Brandon Sousa, from the Government’s London Office, and Shanyce Morris, a young Bermudian working in Britain.
